Our Top THREE FAVORITE Restaurants in Granbury!

Our family ENJOYS living AND eating in Granbury! We love restaurants who offer a wonderful menu, great service, and an inviting atmosphere!

Here are our favorite restaurants:

1 - The Hilton Garden Inn's Weekend Brunch

This place is one of the best places to eat breakfast in town (especially on the weekends). They usually have 8-10 different selections of food on the hot buffet (ranging from hot biscuits and gravy to delectable bacon and sausage). They also have a wonderful selection of fruit, juice, cereal, and yogurt items on the "lighter" part of the breakfast section. People who desire the "make their own" breakfast option can make their own oatmeal (with dried cranberries, nuts, or chocolate chips) OR make their own waffle (with great toppings). The pastries are always fresh and the coffee/tea offerings are always hot (with a mug or "to go" options).
The best part of this weekend brunch is the "made to order" option. I love the fact that this restaurant can make omelets, pancakes, french toast, and other items to your specifications. I love, love, love the Hilton Garden Inn's weekend brunch!

2 - Hoffbrau Steaks!

This is one of my favorite lunch/dinner restaurants in Granbury! Great service, large portions, and amazing food! This place never disappoints! The hot rolls are amazing and come (upon request) with every meal, the roasted corn is the best veggie, AND the restaurant enables you to "taste" your cut of meat before purchasing! One of the best aspects of this restaurant is the whipped banana pudding. Heaven in a bowl!

3 - Cotton Patch

This restaurant has been one of my monthly staples since college! I love Cotton Patch and I enjoy their food selection (especially the blackened fish and chicken fried steak). The rolls and cornbread (my favorite) are always consistently great! The soup is amazing and the take out menu is my standby option when I do not have time to cook during the week.

Cotton Patch always has great coupons in the Val Pak mailing insert for Granbury AND you have the option of printing the coupons on the Val Pak website. Wonderful restaurant! GREAT atmosphere! Amazing selection of food. In addition, I love the relationship that Cotton Patch has with the local community, there is always a donation option to a local charity along with your meal price! Great!
